Nyyti News 3/2022
Concerns, feelings, and fears are worth addressing. They should not be pushed aside or repressed. However, it is important to remember that one should not worry too much, and one should not be ashamed of one’s own feelings. If we deny our feelings, we give fear more power, which can lead to growing anxiety and panic reaction.
Note these if the war in Ukraine raises concerns and fears
- Acceps the thoughts and feelings that come up.
- Talk to someone about your thoughts and feelings.
- Stop hanging in your thoughts, live in the moment. Enjoy and do things that bring joy.
